A New Experience – Working in the games industry

Hey there, Usman here!

This is a new experience for me and you could say a dream come true. I’ve always wanted to work in the games industry in some capacity and now I have the chance. Dojit has given me the opportunity work as Marketing assistant and join a talented team to learn and earn some valuable experience with.

I have experience working with top brand names in the technology industry, companies like Microsoft, Lenovo and Samsung, training staff members in PC World and John Lewis on new products such as Windows 8, Lenovo Yoga Book and Samsung Galaxy S4. This has been a good experience as you can bring great product awareness to the staff members and raise sales, which will help both store and the company represented. It also brings brand awareness to the customers; they experience new technology products and learn something new as they come into the store. Now, with the opportunity of working in the games industry, it will take my experience to the next level and advance my career.

Now on to the fun stuff! I love video games! I have been a gamer since the days of the Super Nintendo. Playing Super Mario and Legend of Zelda: Link To The Past early morning before school was the most enjoyable experience’s I had. Getting that once stage further in Mario or finding that heart peace or killing a boss in Zelda was what I lived for back then. Then I moved onto the N64, PS1 and we entered the 3D era. Seeing Link and Mario characters and worlds in fully 3D changed the way we all looked at games.

Jumping all the way to current generation, gaming has changed a lot; we live in an always-connected world, connecting us to people all over in online multiplayer games. We’ve also entered a time of casual games. Games we can play on our mobile phones or in Facebook on a web browser. People do not have the time to put in hours into games on their consoles or PC’s but can spend 10mins on their commute playing Farmville or Candy Crush Saga.  The casual games I am playing at the moment are Angry Birds Star Wars and Plants Vs Zombies. It’s very satisfying to get past a level in a short amount of time and easy to pick up again.

Hope you enjoyed my first post, will be hoping to bring you fun and informative content in the future
